They said it
Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks. The sanctions are unfair, the Iranian people are suffering, and our (nuclear) activities are legal. These sanctions are illegal and only benefit Israel.

The Argentine born Pope Francis has blasted a so called waste culture.
Since taking office in March, Pope Francis has said he wants the 1.2-billion-strong Roman Catholic Church to practise greater austerity and work toward reform in global financial markets.
Around 1.3 billion tons of food, or one third of what is produced for human consumption, gets lost or wasted every year, according to a United Nations food survey.
The majority of waste is by consumers in the industrialised world.
The pope, in his weekly audience, said: "Our grandparents used to make a point of not throwing away leftover food. Consumerism has made us accustomed to wasting food daily and we are unable to see its real value. Throwing away food is like stealing from the table of those who are poor and hungry".
Instead of throwing away food, a U.N.-backed study has suggested that simple measures such as better storage and reducing over-sized portions would sharply reduce the vast amount of food going to waste.
In US restaurants, diners waste 9% of bought meals.
